Eliade, Mircea "Marriage in Heaven" (Nuntă în cer) - 1938
An interesting novel. Quite philosophical. Two men reminisce about their lives and their encounter with a special woman, both have different kind of fantasies, different kind of attitudes but both are unlucky in love and pour out their hearts to each other. Whether this conversation could happen in real life, I have no idea. Maybe between two strangers who feel they have made a similar experience. Anyway, it was very interesting listening to these two guys and their perception of a relationship. If you can find an English copy, give it a go. It's worth it. I absolutely loved it.
The author was a Romanian historian of religion, philosopher, and fiction writer. His background certainly had an influence on his writing.
From Wikipedia: "The novel Marriage in Heaven depicts the correspondence between two male friends, an artist and a common man, who complain to each other about their failures in love: the former complains about a lover who wanted his children when he did not, while the other recalls being abandoned by a woman who, despite his intentions, did not want to become pregnant by him. Eliade lets the reader understand that they are in fact talking about the same woman."
